Last year Major League Baseball held their inaugural food fest in New York and it was such a success, they brought it back this year with plans for three cities - LA, New York and London. LA was the first stop and it was a foodies paradise, showcasing the best of what all 30 MLB stadiums have to offer. We were lucky enough to take part, with the highlights below.
The playoffs have not been kind to the Kansas City Chiefs in recent memory, but with an MVP candidate under center leading high-flying offense to the number one seed in the AFC this year, Chiefs fans are hoping for different results. Off the field, our friends at Aramark are also looking to lock up that number one seed when it comes to stadium food as they have given us the inside look at what to expect for Saturday’s AFC Divisional game when the Chiefs host the Colts.
Thanks to Delaware North and the fine folks at Lambeau Field, we were given an inside look at all of the food and beverage offerings at historic Lambeau Field on Sunday in advance of the Packers hosting the Dolphins. From the 1919 Kitchen & Tap to inside the stadium, there is one common theme. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Everybody knows that Wisconsin is all about their beer, brats and cheese, so longtime Chef Heath Barbato, who runs all of the restaurants at Lambeau, and his Delaware North staff stick with those traditions; just in new, fresh and exciting ways.
This season may be known as One Last Dance for most Heat fans, but for Chef Jarod Higgins and the American Airlines staff, they are just getting started. Chef was nice enough to give us a tour of the arena complete with stops at 601 Miami, the Dewar’s Club and of course the famed Miami Dog delivered right to our seats.

With the demolition of Tal’s Hill, the staple of Minute Maid Park since opening 2000, fans will be very impressed with the renovation of center field that includes new bar locations, three additional food sites and a premium group seating area at field level, creating the first field-level seating area available in the Minute Maid Park that also gives fans the opportunity to shag balls during batting practice.
Torchy’s Party Deck is an awesome location above centerfield that offers not only great seating but amazing food and drink options. Texas based company Torchy’s offers their full menu with a $2.25 increase in price. As the menu is full of ‘Damn Good Tacos’, their slogan, the must have to try is the Trailer Park – make it trashy, a friend chicken, green chilies, lettuce, pico de gallo and cheese on a flour tortilla with poblano sauce and getting it trashy removes the take off the lettuce and add their signature queso.
Only the second Shake Shack location in the city of Houston – the Astros bring beyond delicious burgers to centerfield. Our must try is the SmokeShack burger. The east coast chain is a must have while catching a game and during the hot months in Houston try the Astros Blast, a vanilla frozen custard blended with chocolate truffle cookie dough, ‘shattered’ sugar cane and chocolate sprinkles. Like Torchy’s minute Shake Shack’s menu in the park sees a $2 increase from their other locations.

By now everybody knows the rich and storied tradition of The Masters and Augusta National Golf Club, but every year people are amazed at how low the concession prices are at such a major sporting event. Even with some minor increases this year (we are talking $0.50 increases to beverages), the Masters remains a tradition unlike any other in every possible way.
It seems like every year the Miami Marlins open up the new baseball season with renewed expectations, only to be let down at some point during the season.

Expectations are just as high off the field at Marlins Park and Levy Restaurants always deliver and this year is no exception.
